In Pathway: 3-dehydroquinate biosynthesis II (archaea)

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: 6-deoxy-5-ketofructose 1-phosphate synthase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: DKFP synthase, MJ1585 (gene name)

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): 0.13647461Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme plays a key role in an alternative pathway of the biosynthesis of 3-dehydroquinate (DHQ), which is involved in the canonical pathway for the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids. The enzyme can also catalyse the reaction of EC, fructose-bisphosphate aldolase.
